About the artists

NO BRA is an electropop band formed in east London, England, in 2003 by Susanne Oberbeck and Fanny Paul Clinton, who combine electronic pop industrial grooves with sinister Germanic folk.

Emma Sullivan is a member of Chrome Hoof, an experimental chamber rock orchestra based in London, England. The group was formed in 2000 by Cathedral bassist Leo Smee and his brother Milo Smee. Initially performing as a duo, their music was mostly electronic. Since the start, however, the group have continuously recruited new members playing different instruments. Sullivan plays trumpet, vocals, keyboard, percussion in the large orchestra. Chrome Hoof’s music spans several diverse music genres such as metal, electro, funk, jazz, disco and chamber music. Their music has been described as progressive, futuristic and psychedelic.

Giles Round (b. 1976) creates sculptures and assemblages of made and ready-made objects, positioned systematically. Without personal belongings, or the suggestion of an individual, they are mundane, melancholic scenes bereft of drama and suspense. He has recently exhibited at S1 Artspace, Sheffield, Serpentine Gallery’s Pavilion and the ICA, London.

Markus Vater (b. 1970 in Dusseldorf) lives and works in London. Solo exhibitions include Kunstverein Rostock, Rostock (2014), Galerie Peter Zimmermann, Mannheim (2013) and No.82, Deptford, London (2013). The artist has had a studio at Studio Voltaire since 2004 and exhibited in TONIGHT curated by Paul O’NeilL in 2004 at Studio Voltaire.
